Headlined by rock’n’roll band Hunter and the Bear, the event will take place on the first night of the VET Festival, the CPD conference for companion animal veterinary professionals devised by Fitzpatrick Referrals’ Noel Fitzpatrick.

Price included

Attendance to the party is included in the price of a VET Festival ticket, with family and friends welcome to join delegates for free.

VET Festival is now in its third year, and takes place in Loseley Park in Guildford on 9-10 June.

A spokesman said: “Party Night will provide both delegates and exhibitors with a chance to unwind and enjoy themselves after a full day of CPD.

Wellness theme

“This outdoor, festival experience with the conference theme of wellness is in response to the growing rise of veterinary professionals feeling disenchanted in their chosen career path and in recognition of the stress and concerns felt by many in their working life.”
